Doug Zell of Intelligentsia talks – briefly – on their future plans for San Francisco & Los Angeles. Of interest: an “Ecco move” to San Francisco (from Santa Rosa) and yet another café in Los Angeles.
I must say that I am just a bit excited for the possibility of Ecco opening something in San Francisco. The post doesn’t talk explicitly about an Ecco café proper but I wonder if it might be something that is in the cards. It would be a very good reason – among others: closer to clients both current and future, first-hand exposure to San Francisco’s still-burgeoning coffee scene… – for moving away from Ecco’s current relatively low cost real-estate situation up north to the exceedingly expensive San Francisco.
